Something I was reminded of today in my quiet moment with the Lord in the Bible was this: “if we are faithless He remains faithful — for He cannot deny Himself.” ~ 2 Tim. 2:13
Basically, even when we as Christians are down-and-out and feeling lost and hopeless, God’s faithfulness is still going strong.
It was a reminder of a lot of things. One, that God has a plan for us, and that Romans 8:28 is still true ,”All things work together for good for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose.”
Two, that God is unchanging and unfailing. No matter what goes on with us, God is always who He is. As He said Himself to Moses through the burning bush, “I Am Who I Am.” Not I was or I will be, but I Am.
Finally, God is always for us, even when we aren’t. Admittedly there have been times in my life where I haven’t believed in myself. To either get the job done or to even take on the job. But what I’ve learned is that all along God believed in me. And it’s the times I’ve seen and believed that that I’ve pulled myself through and came out the otherwise triumphant. The God of the Universe has our backs. If our God is for us, then who could ever stop us indeed.
As you may or may not know I have been doing this “Active Word Daily Devotional” that Pastor Bob Coy wrote. Pastor Coy reminds us that God’s faithfulness is more reliable than the Law of Gravity. “Remember that the next time your faith in God’s faithfulness is challenged. Remember that His faithfulness is a fixed part of His very nature. Remember that He can’t NOT be faithful to you. And remember that His faithfulness remains regardless of how faithless you may be.”
Please believe in yourself, God does. Take some time today to really look at your life. Does 2 Tim. 2:11-13 speak to your life?
“The saying is trustworthy, for: If we have died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him; if we deny him, he also will deny us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful– for he cannot deny himself.”
